Gourmands

East-siders come to play pool, or to flex their cerebral muscle with the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz on Wednesday nights. With a full menu of sandwiches and soup and an encyclopedic beer selection, it definitely feels more like a cozy pub than a destination bar. But people come out raving about the menu: Crisp salads, and a crazy sandwich selection. Power outlets in half of the booths, and an amazing range of beers keep the place busy until closing.

Haymaker

This Manor Road pub is geared toward sandwich-loving beer drinkers, and claims fame for fantastic poutine, a Canadian dish featuring french fries topped with cheese curds and drenched in gravy.

School House Pub

Walking the line between kitschy and nostalgic, this old house plays host with a draft list heavy on dark malts. The options in bottles, bombers, and cans make up the difference.
